How to Survive Teething

Let’s be honest, teething sucks for everyone! My youngest is 7 months old and started teething this week. It’s been so tough on her (and me), but I’m trying a few natural remedies to make it a little easier. Here are the top natural remedies I recommend or have been recommended to me:

1. Amber teething necklace:

Here’s a link all about amber teething necklaces
My second son had a horrible time with teething, but when I discovered this necklace it made things so much easier

2. Teething tablets

I have used these with all of my kids and they help so much. I try to use teething tablets before Tylenol or Motrin. *there’s nothing wrong with Tylenol or Motrin. I have used it many times, but I’m trying to use natural products first. Just my thing;)*

3. Clove oil

I haven’t tried this yet, but this was suggested to me recently. I love using essential oils! Clove oil is a spicy oil so you have to dilute it a lot. I was advised to do one drop of oil with a tsp of oil (coconut or olive). Test it out before running it on baby’s gum. I haven’t had time to do this yet, but definitely will try it.

4. Nosefrida

Runny/stuffy nose usually comes with teething. I’ve tried the snot sucker thingy from the hospital and the battery powered snot sucker in the past. Then I discovered this crazy contraption. You put blue end in baby’s nostril and the red part wait for it…in your mouth. Then you suck out the snot (there’s a foam guard to protect you from the snot). It sounds super gross, but has worked the best for me. Just think of it as the neti pot for babies!

That’s all I have and I hope this helps some tired parents and hurting babies. Teething is a long and difficult process, but I promise it won’t last forever. I’ve survived two rounds so far:)
